2014 saw a whole spectrum of wonderful ways to raise Barrett’s awareness and to get the funding going. Well done to all those who volunteered- a truly impressive amount of events was done

  • Carmen Stringfellow and work colleagues undertook fundraising events at work during February raising £1175! Thank You!
  • Kelly Allen and Mark Rafferty organised a biathlon (right) for BOC raising £1700. In June Nathan Moorey ran the Midnight Sun Marathon in Norway raising £285. Nathan ran the London Marathon for BOC in 2011
  • In May, Stuart Taylor and other members of Imperial College School of Medicine’s Light Opera Society produced and performed “Les Miserables” in 24 hours in aid of Barrett’s Oesophagus Campaign raising £500.

  • Sue Whall (pictured here with her supportive husband) ran the Reigate Half Marathon on Sunday 21st September raising a staggering £10,000.
